Summary, etc.:
"When Mario asks his mother why we cry, her answer comes in sweet imagery. She speaks of grey storm clouds, locked boxes and a vast ocean. She explains that we cry for many reasons -- sometimes cry because we're sad. Other times we cry because we're lonely. Often we cry because we're frustrated. And through all these emotions, our tears can calm us, heal us and help us grow. Vivid illustrations and lyrical prose combine perfectly in this sensitive, reassuring story that will appeal to anyone who's ever wondered why we cry."-- Provided by publisher.
